Meet Our Team
Meet Our Hygienists
Angela is originally from Iowa, but has been a Texan for the past 24 years. She loves to use her dental gifts taking care of the less fortunate and hopes to soon do mission work. She has two handsome sons ages 17 and 19. She loves to travel and is passionate about salt water fishing. She has been a valued hygienist for our team the past 12 years and for most of those we have begged her to please not sing or hum in the patient’s ear! #needsvoicelessons!
Kristi had no idea as a young girl who was terribly afraid of the dentist, that she would one day become a world-class dental hygienist. One of her favorite things about her profession is the opportunity to help her patients build and keep their confidence with a healthy smile. She thrives on building meaningful relationships them. This year she has been a WINO, a “Woman In Need of Off-time”, to spend with her graduating senior daughter. Her personal goal is to make sure all her patients feel safe and relaxed during their time in her chair and look forward to their next dental visit.
